Carpet is now and always has been the most popular flooring product. Why? It offers a variety of colors, fibers, patterns and designs, is beautiful and decorative. It is also softer, quieter, warmer, more economical (costs less per yard), and is easy to maintain. Many carpet products today are very stain resistant.
Warranties vary on carpets stains and wearability.
Again, carpet costs less per yard than other flooring products.
